dc.description.abstractFinal year students on a BSc Hons Nursing programme in Scotland were supported to become Dementia Friends facilitators and develop interactive dementia awareness sessions for children from local schools. The children were invited to indicate phrases and images they associated with 'dementia' at the outset and end of the session. Analysis of the responses suggested that there were positive changes in the children's values and beliefs when thinking about a person living with dementia during the sessions. We suggest that peer learning is a valuable strategy to increase public and professional awareness about dementia and supports the development of graduate attributes.
